    Installing Parallels Desktop
    Hello, all. I've searched through this forum briefly and I have not found an answer to my question. My question is as follows: Where can I find an image of Windows XP / Windows 7 to use for Parallels desktop? I've been a Mac user for literally my entire life, so I don't have a copy of an installation disk for windows and I was wondering where on the internet I could find one. A torrent would do perfectly fine, but I can't seem to find one that actually has a disk image because a majority of them are just cracks.

    Thank you so much! (:

    We do not support illegally obtained software. Your best bet is to purchase a copy of Windows, either XP or Win 7. A system builder's OEM version is the cheapest and can be had for reasonable prices at places like newegg.com.

    You need a legal XP with SP2 or Windows 7 to use with Bootcamp.
